Ferrari F12 Berlinetta

February 29, 2012 Cars By Photo by Ferrari

We wouldn’t expect anything capable of earning the title of “Fastest. Ferrari. Ever.” to be anything short of spectacular, and the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta is just that. In spades. Ushering in the world beyond supercars the Berlinetta is propelled by a V12 engine harnessing 740 angry ponies (509 lb-ft of torque), which endows it with enough potenza to blast through 62 mph in 3.1 seconds, 104 mph in 8.5 seconds, all the way to a top speed of over 211 mph. Beyond its face-bending speed and drool inducing looks — could those wheels fill out the wells any better? — Maranello has pulled out all the stops in the features department, which include an all-new spaceframe chassis, F1 dual-clutch transmission, and an active brake system combined with carbon-ceramic brakes to corral all that utterly, insane, power. Did someone say Enzo? What Enzo?
